Nepal unrest poses tough choice to International community

[b]Nepal unrest poses tough choice to International community[/b]

[b]Kathmandu, 24 April ([/b] Nepal is still burning. Unrest is spreading. King's offer to be a constitutional monarchy and to let multiparty democracy to flourish has found takers in India, China EU, and USA but not in the Seven Parties Alliance. A day long meeting of Alliance has rejected the Royal offer and decided to continue its peaceful movement. For valid reasons it appears.

Seven Parties Alliance is an alliance of democratic parties (Nepali Congress, Nepali Congress (Democratic) and Sadabhawana Party (Ananda Devi) and Communist Parties (UML, Jana Morcha, Majdoor Kishan Party and Nepal Communist Party). The Communist Parties dominates the alliance and their political goal is not constitutional monarchy. Nepali Congress, Nepali Congress (Democratic) and UML are major parties and clearly demarcated line; others in the alliance are small parties which have been struggling for engagement in competitive democracy. For them the King's proposal is no big deal.
